Support groups

I live in the Wallsend area and wantedto know if there were any support groups operating locally. If so where and when are they.

Hello there and welcome to the Sue Ryder Online Community. I read your profile and I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. The main purpose of this site is for online support - it’s a place where people can post messages, share their feelings and support each other. However, I can point you in the direction of some places to find face-to-face support.

  • Cruse Bereavement run support groups through their local services.
  • The Good Grief Trust has a database of support services around the country.
  • You could contact your local hospice to see if they run support groups or can point you in the direction of one.

While you look for a support group, or in between meetings, you might find it helpful to have a look at some of the recent conversations in the Losing a Partner section of the site, to see what experiences our other users have had.
